Vector brush only makes straight lines

Recommended Posts

I get this problem every time I open Affinity, however closing the program and opening it again always solves it. Just figured I'd post it here. I'm using a Huion H610PRO

Hi WatcherMagic :)

Thanks for your report. This would indicate the shift constraint key is being held, does your drawing tablet have a set button for the shift key that could be being pressed?

Please also double check your drivers are fully up to date, as old drivers cause 90% of issues with drawing tablets.

Failing that, resetting Affinity to it's default settings may fix the issue, you can reset your app back to its default settings by holding down the CTRL key while launching the app. When the Clear User Data window appears, click Select All and then Clear. The app will now open.

Be aware that resetting your app back to its default settings will lose any custom settings such as keyboard shortcuts and brushes etc. To backup such settings before resetting the app, please watch our Affinity - Exporting User Settings and Keyboard Shortcuts video.

I can confirm that I have had this problem with a Huion Kamvas Pro 13. And I am certain that it is a Designer issue, because I closed it and tried the same tablet with Photoshop and Krita with no problem. I have the latest version of Designer and the latest Huion driver, which was emailed to me by Huion support. They sent me the driver upon me telling them the issues I was having with Designer.

I posted another topic that is similar. Maybe it's related. I had this issue, along with brushes completely losing function with my tablet. The only fix was to do a Repair install. When you run the installer, it gives the option of Repair or Uninstall. If nothing else works, do that. Personally, I don't want to keep reinstalling every time a bug hits.

I've been running Photoshop CS5.1 since 2011 and have never had to reinstall, to my memory. Except when I installed on a new computer. To be fair, Designer is much newer and I expect some bugs. It would just be nice to have more incremental updates. Overall, I love the program.....or I would not have bought it!

Try to turn off "windows ink" in Huion pen settings. Do you use Win10?  If yes, set up windows ink settings as below (it's in Polish but you can easily figure out what's going on):
